Residential Inverters

A battery inverter is a pivotal component in a solar panel system, designed to convert the direct current (DC) electricity stored in solar batteries into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is the standard form used in homes.

When solar panels produce energy, it’s often more than a household can consume immediately. This excess energy is stored in batteries as DC power.

However, most household appliances run on AC power. That’s where the battery inverter comes in, transforming the stored DC power into usable AC power.

For homeowners with solar panels, having a battery inverter ensures that the energy harvested from the sun can be efficiently utilised at any time, day or night, maximising the benefits of their solar investment.

SMA Inverters

Founded in Germany in 1981, SMA is a leading global manufacturer of solar and battery inverters, with a dominant presence in Australia since 2007, ensuring smart renewable energy investments for its users.

SunGrow Inverters

Founded in 1997, Sungrow is a global leader in solar inverters and energy storage. Based in China and active in over 150 countries, they provide reliable solutions for homes to large projects, championing the move to sustainable energy.

Fronius Inverters

Founded in Austria in 1945, Fronius was initially a welding transformer manufacturer. They ventured into solar technology in the 1990s. Their inverters, known for quality and reliability, boast features like MPPT technology and smart grid integration.

Enphase Inverters

Founded in 2006, Enphase revolutionised the solar industry with microinverter technology, making solar power safe, reliable, and scalable. Their intelligent microinverters work with nearly all solar panels, delivering top performance when combined with our smart battery tech.

Why do I need an inverter?

  • Energy Conversion: Transforms solar-generated DC into household friendly AC.

  • Optimal Use: Uses MPPT technology for maximum energy extraction.

  • Grid Connection: Enables feeding excess energy back to the grid.

  • Safety: Shuts down during grid outages for protection.

  • Monitoring: Tracks real-time energy production and use.

  • Efficiency: Addresses issues like shading for peak performance.

  • Battery Integration: Connects with storage systems for 24/7 power access.

FAQ – Which Inverter is Right For Your Home?

What is a solar inverter, and what does it do for my solar system?2023-09-19T01:43:52+00:00

A solar inverter converts the direct current (DC) electricity generated by your solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity usable in your home.

What types of solar inverters are available for residential systems?2023-09-19T01:44:15+00:00

There are three main types: string inverters, microinverters, and power optimisers. Each has its advantages, depending on your system and budget.

How do I choose the right inverter for my home solar system?2023-09-19T01:44:38+00:00

Consider factors like your solar panel capacity, roof orientation, shading, and budget. Consulting with a professional installer can help you make an informed choice.

What is the difference between a single-phase and a three-phase inverter?2023-09-19T01:44:58+00:00

Single-phase inverters are suitable for smaller residential systems, while three-phase inverters are better for larger homes with higher electricity demand.

Can I upgrade my existing solar inverter to a more advanced model?2023-09-19T01:45:33+00:00

In some cases, it’s possible to upgrade your inverter to a newer and more efficient model. Consult with us to assess your options.

Do inverters come with warranties, and what do they cover?2023-09-19T01:46:07+00:00

Yes, most of our inverters come with warranties ranging from 5 to 25 years. These warranties typically cover manufacturing defects and inverter performance.

How do I monitor the performance of my solar inverter and panels?2023-09-19T01:46:43+00:00

Most of our inverters come with built-in monitoring systems, or you can use third-party monitoring solutions to track your system’s performance, including energy production and any potential issues.

What maintenance is required for my solar inverter?2023-09-19T01:47:16+00:00

Inverters generally require minimal maintenance. Periodic inspections and cleaning may be needed, and it’s essential to keep the inverter’s cooling system free from obstructions.

How can I ensure my solar inverter operates optimally during power outages?2023-09-19T01:48:52+00:00

Consider adding a backup power solution, such as a battery storage system, to ensure continuous electricity supply during outages. If you want to explore this further, contact Platinum Solar designs today and we will be happy to discuss the right steps for you.
